Keeping My Integrity
I've posted my grievance towards R. One officemate said she felt the same way towards him. I got that.
My post was not intended to aggravate anyone's story of him. After some talk with some people last night, I was able to acknowledge that I am upset with him.
I wanted to present to R that he should also be responsible for whatever circumstances that he was/is/would be in. As I make him aware of it, I was also attached to the result of making a difference. However, I shouldn't be. It would all be up to him to do it for himself. I just have to accept him as he is.
However, I am also respecting my word. I am committed to investmy time talking to optimistic people. So, I am no longer eating lunch with him. I may not look good in the eyes of other people for this, but I have to honor my word.
And it's definitely better than me eating lunch with him and fuming while chewing.
This is one way of honoring my word.
